ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE PLACES TO LIVE
As an international destination, real estate in the Bow Valley is sought after by people from all over the world. Canmore has a large number of international homeowners which is just one of the many components that help properties retain their resale value.
Currently we are experiencing a housing crisis by which residents are finding there aren’t enough properties for rent to sustain the demand for full time accommodation.
Vacancy rates continue to hover around 0-1% which are driving the cost of rental rates to an all time high and in some cases are causing people to leave town.
Many of our buyers who plan to one day retire in Canmore are making the choice to buy now and pay down their mortgage by operating their home a rental until such times are they can live here full time.
Who is buying property in Canmore?
It’s hard not to fall in love with this little mountain town. Often we’ll have visitors from abroad or even just from around the province who come to holiday or road trip and end up making the choice to live the mountain lifestyle and live here full time.
Many Canmore residents even commute to Calgary for their careers but still choose to reside in the Mountains.
For many, living in Canmore is their dream for the future. In the meantime, they own a property here and occupy it part time, mostly weekends and holidays until such times when they can retire or transition to remote careers or start a new business here in the valley.
